Airplane doors

I just can't figure this out. The plane landed, we've taxied to the gate, what's so hard about opening the door. Why does it take so long? Are they training someone new?

It's no surprise that we arrived. I mean, our flight was on their list, air traffic controllers knew we were arriving, they said we could land, they certainly saw us come down the runway and taxi in to the gate. Come on people, the plane has landed and we want to get off.

I am NOT impatient, I just drank a full bottle of water over an hour ago. The captain switched on the seat belt sign earlier because of turbulence. Yikes. Can't we hurry it up?

Let's open those doors people!

An optimist invented the airplane; a pessimist the parachute.
